B, L, T, A, H (Bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado, hummus) 

If you think a BLT can’t get any better, prepare to be pleasantly surprised — mainly because avocado and hummus make EVERYTHING better. Because this lunch takes 5 minutes to prepare, you might even have spare time to catch a catnap, or finally wash your hair. And because this sandwich packs in major amounts of fiber, it will keep you satisfied long after you’ve cleaned your plate. 

Makes 2 sandwiches / Prep time: 5 minutes / Total time: 5 minutes


  • Cooking spray
  • 4 slices whole grain bread
  • ½ avocado, mashed
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 2 slices center-cut bacon, cooked
  • 2 large leaves romaine lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons hummus


  1. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and toast the bread in the skillet over medium-high heat until it’s golden, about 2 minutes per side. 
  2. Spread two slices of the toast each with 1 tablespoon hummus and two slices of the toast each with ½ of the avocado. 
  3. Cut the bacon slices in half and put two halves, side by side, on each slice of avocado toast, followed by 1 leaf of lettuce and 2 slices of tomato. 
  4. Top the slices of toast with hummus.
